Thanks for info ...

First thing that I want to share with you is , uniltaeral eye pain is highly unlikely because of systemic disease like Fibro , this seems to be one sided eye issue , it could be Optic Neuritis of right sided eye . This right sided visual loss with Headache is because of nerve involvement of respective side .

As far as generalized body ache is concerned in this is the feature of Fibromylagia .

Duloxetine (Cymbalta) and milnacipran (Savella) may help ease the pain and fatigue associated with fibromylagia. Your doctor may prescribe amitriptyline or fluoxetine (Prozac) to help promote sleep. Anti-seizure drugs. Medications designed to treat epilepsy are often useful in reducing certain types of pain.

I will suggest you to have such pills , and management for relief , this will help you out for not only improvement in bodyaches but also in migraine .

Please get this treatment .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Topamax is also anti seizure medication as I mentioned anti seizure is used for this purpose , so this is also good choice , you should continue it .
